[speaking spanish] >> he was talking to his mom for the first time and overwhelmed. >> the sonic boom held around the world. united airlines to fly passengers on a super sonic jet in just under three hours. ♪ down on the corner ♪ out in the street ♪ '. lawrence: if you think god's country, "fox & friends" your morning show. i'm here with brian and ainsley. brian, the audience doesn't like the way you are treating them. brian bine that is not true. lawrence: i got several messages brian is being hard on lawrence on his first week. brian: first week? what are you talking about. lawrence: i just got the promotion. brian: and all we hear is about
3:02 am
lawrence's promotion. ainsley: lawrence opened the show yesterday yes i'm here on the curvey couch with my steants assistants brian and ainsley. brian: you don't think i'm going to take that personal. ainsley: brian said i have been here 24 years. brian and ainsley and brian are joining me. i thought that was interesting way to sign in for steve. will cain was at home taking notes i should open that way ains. lawrence: i wasn't good to my other colleagues. ainsley: we are so glad you are here filling in for steve. [laughter] okay, it's 6:02 on the east coast. we have a lot to get. to say this is a big story. we have been following it all morning. former state department leaders listen to this. they reveal that they were warned not pursue an investigation into the origins of covid. brian: talk about a fast-moving story this is the utter definition of it. they told fox news it was all over fears of bringing attention to u.s. funding of wuhan's research lab.
3:03 am
lawrence: this is unbelievable. griff jenkins joins us live from washington with more. griff, what do you know? this is just unbelievable. griff: well, we are learning it's very fast evolving for sure as you guys pointed out, lawrence, brian, ainsley, good morning to you. now the state department officials say they were warned that you might, quote, open a can of worms. that is according to vanity fair, fox news has since confirmed that as details concerning the investigation could bring unwanted attention to gain of function research wuhan lab, because the lab had received u.s. funding. dr. fauci still maintained that the virus likely originated in bats. the evidence points otherwise. former white house white house testing czar brett giroir has had this to say. >> sars leaked out and caused deaths. anthrax leaked out of a soviet laboratory and killed 70 people. lab leaks are not uncommon. data like people getting ill in
3:04 am
november from the laboratory. if that proves true, that coincides exactly when we know this virus hit china. griff: the former cdc director says he was even threatened for his views challenging the biological bat theory. >> i have spent my life in virology. i do not believe this somehow came from a bat to a human. normally in a pathogen goes from a genome to human it takes a while to figure out how to become more and more efficient in human-to-human transmission. i just don't think this blidges sense. >> the response to the vanity fair piece. no effort was made at any time to suppress or withhold information from senior policy makers or the public. this as republicans push for a gain of function probe. congressman michael waltz saying this a litany of mounting evidence raises legitimate concerns regarding the safety and security of federally funded research to the wuhan lab.
3:05 am
meanwhile, the white house standing by dr. fauci after this email is released showing new light on what he may or may not have known about covid origins, lawrence, brian, ainsley? brian: that's an explosive story. the only thing i would add to that two things here. what happened and what did we do while it was happening that might have saved some of the 500, getting close to 600,000 american lives and millions around the globe? robert redfield said i'm seeing this coming out when he was cdc director. he calls over to china. i received a message from the head of the chinese center for their version of the cdc. said redfield immediately offered to send a team of specialists when he saw that this covid-19 virus was taking root. he was suspicious of the wuhan lab. if the team finds samples in workers there this could be convincing evidence this is a problem. he never got back to him. we had the right instincts and move but the cooperation was never there on china's side. that should have made clear by
3:06 am
from day one by the scientific community. ainsley: i think what opened up all of this in this investigation rand paul was going back and forth with dr. fauci. he was on our show yesterday. he said gain of function research is when you take an animal virus and you make it a super virus and study how it would affect humans. that's what they do in this lab. is it coincidental in november of 2019 three doctors from wuhan lab go to the hospital with signs of cody? then it starts to spread in wuhan that november. then it goes to beijing first case december 8th. then it comes to america in january. brian: might have been here sooner. ainsley: some people think they had it in december. lawrence: there is a lot of things political in country. scientists should not be political. brian: they are. lawrence: jamie metzl is a democrat. he said there is a lot of politics being involved with the science and he was on tucker last night. take a look. >> early last year, i was
3:07 am
looking at the evidence and it was -- there was this fake consensus i felt saying well, we know something that nobody i felt knew that it was natural origin, i was looking at all of the data that was suggesting to me that a lab incident origin was really possible. i started asking those questions. and i think everybody should have been asking those questions. some were. but there was a forced consensus that was pushed by -- certainly by the chinese but by a number. even a small number of scientists who had very significant conflicts of interest. unfortunately, we allowed. we collectively allowed a fake consensus to emerge. i think that stifled some very healthy question-asking. ainsley: is he a progressive democrat. think about what he said. nobody felt it was natural think was pushed by the chinese. we allowed a fake consensus. i talked to one doctor he said if you look at the virus there is a receptor that's been added to the virus.
3:08 am
he said that is a human had to add that receptor testing this virus. brian: i have got to tell you when you see the politic was that get into science and you see how people ridiculed for even questioning the science during the pandemic, mark levin put it brilliantly last night with sean hannity. he said we see this politics happening, especially anthony fauci who still walks on water on most networks. not this one. we looked at him as a human being who is fallible almost from day one and his mistakes were apparent to everyone except him. he said if you see what fauci is doing and have problems with that you will have problems with something else. listen. >> it will be one of the most unimaginable ironies in our history if the federal department responsible for protecting us from the pandemic contributed to creating one. and this gets to the heart of the matter. the nature of government, the nature of politicians. you see, biden and the democrats
3:09 am
want to centralize more and more power. they are trying to destroy the suburbs as i speak. they want to control healthcare. they want to control energy. they want to control all these things. when people run around and talk about man made climate change and they don't have serious science to back it up, and they close down anybody who raises questions. we are going to follow the science, they say. ladies and gentlemen, news flash. the science has been politicized. and not by conservatives but by the radical left. they want to destroy our economy based on their science. brian: i always listen to mark levin he makes good points. they shut you down when you question anthony fauci for the last year you think to yourself wife are you shutting me down people have legitimate questions about anthony fauci. how dare you. you get banned from instagram and facebook and twitter if you bring this up. now they unfreeze those accounts when you bring up the wuhan lab and the same thing is going to
3:10 am
have happen to climate change. people have to stand their grounds when it comes to destroying fossil fuels and our energy, the bills of energy this our country. and risk being shut down on social media because as you see, many times the science is all really about political science. and that is not science. >> lawrence: guys, the last thing i'm going to say on this is we had mike pompeo on yesterday. and i said, you know, there was a lot of back and forth going on behind the scenes. why walls the president getting into it with fauci? why were you having issues? why was the vice president? i said, did you alleluia know this stuff was happening behind the scenes? did you have intelligence he? said lawrence, you know, i have got to be very careful on this. now we know the stuff that is being released publicly that they did know what was going on. this is why they didn't trust fauci behind the scenes. ainsley: president trump kept saying he thinks this happened in a lab. mike pompeo said this shouldn't come as a surprise that the state department didn't like president trump, didn't like me. didn't like what we were doing
3:11 am
because they were asking questions about the origins of this. he said the chinese have a deep interest in covering it up and they have done so pretty darn effectively. morgan ortagus a spokesperson for the. we were criticized for each bringing this up. we felt like this needed to be researched. china is still stopping the investigations and she is upset with the media. she said the u.s. media how they handled this over the last year they got it dead wrong. brian: don't include us in that we didn't. we were questionable every step of the way. 11 minutes after the hour. the border disaster is beyond comprehension when you see 5-year-olds screaming for their parents and hope a smuggler will come back to save them. see other children dropped off walls and other networks not even picking it up. you see a 5-year-old on his cell phone desperately trying to catch up with their mother who left without even telling this 5-year-old what's going on. the word is the border is open and they're walking over with biden t-shirts basically saying
3:12 am
thank you, joe. they are refusing to acknowledge the problem which is the most mind numbing. so i would add this to this. they are now seeing over 17,000 unaccompanied minors and countless families and they got nowhere to put them, ainsley. ainsley: there is a hotel now that has now turned into detention center in a nice area of scottsdale. residents there are furious. no one told us. the city of scottsdale says on website according to ice officials this site is for intact families political asylum taking transportation. continue their journey for sponsor family. scottsdale has no current authority to prevent the hotel from being rented to these immigrant families. the residents there are protesting. there was a protest on wednesday. because they said they were not told. one resident said it's not just the community. i just don't think it's fair that they got to jump the line there. there are people who are waiting and have been waiting for years to get their paperwork. i don't think it's fair they get to jump the line. that's my bigger issue.
3:13 am
lawrence: they keep talking about -- i don't see how it continues to maintain with this type of climate. they keep lying to the american republic, telling them everything is okay. we know that they have gone from hotels. hhs facilities. now they are putting them on airplanes paid for by the taxpayers by the way to city after city, state after state. then they don't have the decency to call the elected officials to let them know this is getting ready to happen. they it host town halls with the public let them know this is about to happen. american cities, all across the country are struggling. people, needles everywhere. your tax dollars in the middle of a pandemic by the way is going to house illegal immigrants. unbelievable. brian: they refuse to crack down on the border because a lot of policies are working with. here is one resident of scotts scale. you have got to be kidding me. no one is asking me what's going on and it's my life that's at stake. listen. >> we don't know who these people are we have been told that there will be anybody from
3:14 am
1200 to 2,000 residing there. we don't know what their background is. if any of them have criminal activities. and, of course, they are at a hotel not a prison facility. so it will be interesting to see if they count the number walking in and count the number walking out if it's the same number. that's what our concern is that may be some element that we don't want in there that escape from there and, you know, we're a residential neighborhood. we have a lot of children and grandchildren here. ainsley: he said he and his wife drove by the facility when they heard about this and he said there were armed guards outside. another homeowner took pictures of unloading buses with people with backpacks walking into the facility. brian: you hear senator mark kelly saying anything? no. he is up for re-election. he is in john mccain's seat. how could people of arizona think democrats are answering their call when they are sitting there left so vulnerable. there is going to be a political price to pay. ainsley: the a.g. is speaking
3:15 am
out about it. is he mad about it. lawrence: people on tiktok making fun we have become a joke to the criminal enterprise leading this effort. brian: they are making a ton of money. 14 minutes after the top of the hour. not about money for jillian. she does this for the love of news. jillian: yes, exactly. ainsley: what time do you wake up in the morning, jillian? jillian: midnight. i love it so much. let me get you caught up on some of the headlines that we are following. this one a 1-year-old girl pleads guilty to the murder in the botched car jacking that left an uber eats driver dead in d.c. the girl and another teen were caught on video tasing the 66-year-old driver before taking his car and speeding off as he clung to the vehicle. the plea means she will be released from prison when she turns 21. the other suspect a 15-year-old girl pleaded guilty to felony murder last month. overnight police deploy tear gas in clashes with protesters in

♪ >> i am of the point of view that i still think the most likely etiology of this of pathogen in wuhan was from a laboratory escaped. other people don't believe that that's fine. science will eventually figure it out. it's not unusual for respiratory pathogens in a laboratory to effect the laboratory worker. brian: right he said that to cnn and we haven't heard from since. robert redfield said he publicly supported the idea, as you just heard that covid-19 escaped from a chinese lab. he was threatened and ostracized even by former friends. he told vanity fair, quote, i expect it from politicians not from science. dr. nicole saphier is the author of panic attack, playing politics with science and the fight against covid-19. and joins us right now. were you surprised robert
3:23 am
redfield said what he said nicole -- doctor? >> you know, brian, then director redfield was on the mark with that statement. he didn't come counsel hard on china. he didn't dismiss anything else. he gave his opinion saying this was his opinion after reviewing data what the most likely scenario was. then also giving credence to the fact these things happen. they are likely going to happen again if we don't do something about it what we didn't expect was the backlash that came when he was being truthful with his opinions. brian: right. but you experienced that personally, right? >> i sure did. when i was researching for my book i have an entire chapter talking about the origins and exploring those theories. when i reached out to several of my colleagues and friends, i had many who they wouldn't even speak to me. i actually have a good friend who i have been friends with for decades no longer speaking to me just because i ask the question could this have happened? and, if not, why not? and told me that i was promoting conspiracy theories and didn't want to be associated with me.
3:24 am
it was really telling in a sobering process throughout this entire time. brian: so much contradiction. what i find so maddening is there was never acknowledgment we find out new information and now this is what we are going to do. it was here's what we are doing. not even acknowledging that we gave you contradictory statements before. now, have you told us if we are vaccinated 98.6% not going to get the virus. the symptoms are going to be mild. you say you don't have to wear a mask, right? fine. if you are vaccinated you are taking your own health into your own hands. i believe that's the american way, that's your decision. california is doing something totally contradictory. they are going to fully reopen in less than two weeks. they should be open already a state board just decided all vaccinated workers must still mask up unless everybody gets vaccinated. that goes against the coasted science, right? here we go again. >> brian, it's interesting. if you actually look at what the california occupational safety came with, they said, yes, the -- workers can all take off their masks as long as every worker in the building is
3:25 am
vaccinated. they are citing because there are still workplace outbreaks occurring. if you actually break down where outbreaks are occurring. you know, brian, people aren't going to take them for their word for it anymore. this is all public data. if you go and look where those outbreaks are occurring the most commonplace for a workplace outbreak to still be occurring is in the hospitals, nursing home fittings and residential facilities. the places where people are actually still wearing masks and usually have the most highest percent populated of vaccine personnel. why aren't they looking at that a little bit more? why are there hospitals still having outbreaks? i can tell you, brian, it's always been not because of the patrons and not because of the general population because people like to go into their break rooms and they get comfortable and they take their mask down. one thing i would encourage california to do if you saw what happened to foster farms. they had to pay a fine of $130,000 to the state for failing to protect a lot of their employees. they had 8 employees i do from
3:26 am
covid-19. here what happens they should do. the big corporations should offer to give vaccines to anybody who wants them. make it convenient for people to get vaccinated that should incentivize people to get it make it easy, people are more likely to get it you can't keep picking and choosing which laws you are going to follow. california has 65% of population with at least one dose of the vaccine. enough cases are down to less than a thousand a day. that's been like that for a while. they have have more case of active tuberculosis in the state than they do covid-19. and that's never warranted masking. brian: by the way, still waiting two more weeks. they should have been opened may first, april 1st, march 1st. unbelievable the power these governors have. how about the message of get in shape? it's the people that are overweight make them more susceptible. so why not put that, get control of your own health and put that into the messaging? dr. saphier, congratulations on the book "panic attack is out. it's right over your left

lawrence: we know former president trump's message message was if you don't get it under control i'm going to terrify you. the audience is upset because they don't feel the country is upset and american officials standing up for them. >> this is an invasion happening at our southern border. we need to remember that this starts, this starts all the way down in panama. and panama closed their border a couple weeks ago but they, in effect can't because the incredible crush of migrants that are coming from all over the world. i think one of the important points, lawrence, that i wanted to confirm is i heard from border patrol couple months ago that this isn't just people coming from mexico or central america, which i think most americans believe it is. these are people that are coming from all over the world. these are extra coincidental migrants coming from all over the world. when i was down in southern

3:44 am
see that the teachers are implementing this racial division. equity at this training time to go to school board meetings and ask about what this curriculum is about. >> ainsley: jessica, we saw the video, your neighbor across the street doing that why did she do that to you? she used to be a friend of yours, right? >> yeah. i considered her a friend. some of the parents and i were asked to be interviewed about critical race theory so i had a crew out to my house. and i was explaining the personal story about how some of my family members had criticized me for speaking up. and matt turned off the camera and asked me what was up with my neighbor because she was flipping me off while i was talking. i was shocked that anyone would behave that way, let alone someone i considered a friend. i couldn't believe it. that she chose to do that over my friendship and that's what hurts the most. i mean, communities are divided. and that's what critical race theory does. it divides us into categories
3:45 am

3:46 am
the debts of their parents their ancestors they never even knew. ainsley: family says this is nod a good look. don't get involved in this argument. why do they say that. >> associating myself, fred, have you cogent arguments, yeah you should not sit next to or allow yourselves with those people, meaning rich white suburban republican women. i will align myself with 10,000 of them if they are on the right side of this issue. ainsley: jessica, is this worth it to you. your children obviously live in your house and you have neighbors right across the street flipping you off. >> it's totally worthy worth it to me. i have two little girls a kindergarten and second grader he made a choice to stand up and do the right thing and fight for what is right. and make my family proud. ainsley: patty, interest is this facebook page a group criticizing you all.

anti-racist parents loudoun county facebook group. what are they saying about you. >> it's really funny, they blacklisted me and called me racist. the irony in that my parents escaped communist cuba in 1961. i know what socialism looks like, and it's not a free society. it's not free speech. what this loudoun county school board is doing is implement ago curriculum behind parents, you know, we have no knowledge of what is happening. and we have gone to school boards to ask. we have asked for a town hall. they won't listen to us. what i decided to do is partner with liberty justice center and we have a lawsuit against the loudoun county school board. ainsley: what is happening in this country if you speak out and the majority of the neighbors disagree with you, you are canceled? >> yeah, it's really troubling. and first of all, let me just say that i know loudoun county public school teachers, i know several of them they work hard. i know many of the school board members have our children's best
3:48 am
interest at heart. let's talk about this thing. we cannot function in a society where if you oppose or if you want to get an idea of what somebody else is doing, then you are automatically it goes to the extreme. we have to be able to communicate with each other and talk and have an open dialogue. i want to say let's look at critical race theory examine it, use a scientific method, let our children understand it and decide. do they believe this? or do they believe that this is the greatest opportunity bastion of opportunity in the world and it was found based on religious freedom and had a horrible period of slavery or is it an irredeemably bad place that has dealt you and your friends a bad hand? let's talk about it. our children are smart. i don't want this to be one extreme left thing or extreme right. ainsley: that's education, right? giving them all sides, every story and then they can decide. thank you all so much for fighting for this and for coming

4:03 am
that some of the features of the virus looked phonily engineered. months later anderson released a report saying the virus was not constructed in a lab. eflail april of last year a fox news report that many believe it originated in the wuhan lab before accidently escaping the email subject line is conspiracy gains momentum. sent by nih director francis collins to fauci. fauci says he wasn't down playing the lab leak but talking about the idea that the virus was bioengineered as a weapon. dr. fauci says he believed last year and still does, it's more likely that this virus jumped from an animal to human although he says we don't know for sure. and the white house defended his value amid calls from republicans that he needs to testify on the hill about what he knew and when. >> i will let him speak for himself and he has been undeniable asset in our country's pandemic response. but it's not obviously that advantageous for me to
4:04 am
re-litigate the substance of emails from 17 months ago. >> the emails come as vanity fair reports that state department officials were warned they might open a can of worms if they brought any attention to the gain of function research being done at the lab because that lab had received u.s. funding. according to vanity fair. back to you guys. ainsley: thank you so much, jackie. and also in that article thomas, the assistant -- acting assistant secretary of state department for the avc he said it smelled like a cover-up. them says don't open this can of worms, this is pandora's box smelled like a cover-up and he said i wasn't going to be part of it. brian: you do you know what i found pretty amazing looking at the emails he was actually questioned by another channel and he said emails the whole thing about where this virus came from. do you remember that? he said why was it redacted? how do i know? 10,000 emails.
4:05 am
excuse me, you have something about -- when you have something about the research in a wuhan lab in the subtitle in the subject, you think you would remember that would kind of stand out back then, and i'm sure it was something positive he would. lawrence: as you know brian and ainsley, this is all coming to the head because is he writing this book. it brings up the question. i always wondered this with everything that was going on with cuomo, why did he stand by -- he always called him the gold standard even with all the criticism. now we know. two peas in a pod. the after the pandemic. more and more information is coming out. and now we see that walk like a duck, quack like a duck, it's a duck. here is from governor jim justice he reacts to the fauci emails. take a look. >> i don't know how you could look at a camera and say one thing now when you know you've looked at a camera three months ago, six months ago, three years ago, whatever it was and said something completely the
4:06 am
opposite. and he has done that with a clear face. i don't know how you do it. if i had made a mistake, i would acknowledge the mistake before i ever said something again. i do not know how in the world we can continue to put credibility in somebody that doesn't acknowledge their mistake before. brian: and i had a chance to talk to him yesterday. we're doing a feature that's going to be on the channel and fox nation on the greenbrier which he actually owns. is he a very successful businessman along with being governor of west virginia. one of the things he said is i make mistakes. he said what i have always done is i admit my mistakes and i do. what i find maddening and ainsley he pointed this out before this hour started. he says something totally opposite that this virus is not going to be a problem here. you don't have to wear a mask. you got wear a mask. ainsley: not a lab leak, it might be a lab leak. brian: he never comes back it's bad it's risky.
4:07 am
when the never goes down in texas he never acknowledging the success. that's what grifs this governor a successful businessman crazy, too. did you have not think i was paying attention when you told me to do the exact opposite and now you are saying something different. lawrence: you can't be arrogant and wrong. such a self-righteous approach. i think the white house is banking on us forgetting. jen psaki made it very clear. we don't want to litigate this right now. we don't want to go through this. he was an asset for us back then. well maybe he really wasn't an asset. maybe he was hiding information from the public. >> as i alluded to in the first hour, we had mike pompeo on. he made it very clear look, he doesn't want to expose intention information, but they knew something. ainsley: i just wish he would come out and say look, i made mistakes. we didn't know anything about this virus, it was new to us. we didn't know what we were up against, and i didn't think we needed masks and then i realized we did. some families lost their loved ones and they are upset with him because they followed his guidance and learned later it was changing. then we learned the story broke that three of the doctors in the
4:08 am
wuhan lab noe of 2019. they went to the hospital with covid-like symptoms. then we learned that this gain of function research is happening there. and our country is giving money toward that. lawrence: which he denied. ainsley: that's when you take an animal virus and make it a super virus and then you test to see how it will effect humans in case it ever does get out. did a mistake happen in a lab? did these three doctors who went to the hospital, did they breathe in covid? did they take it to the hospital? can they spread it? we just have all of these questions and we deserve answers because so many americans and some people all over the world died. brian: especially if you are being intentionally deceptive. ainsley: correct. if you had the information and you are not being transparent. brian: if you have information and if you want to keep people away from asking questions, that's a problem. meanwhile, 8 minutes after the top of the hour, let's talk about the border disaster because that's exactly what it is. if you think it's been bad in the spring. it's going to get a lot worse in the summer. here's a story in the "the washington post."
4:09 am
huge border influxion brings fear of grim -- fears of grim summer for migrant death. guess what? we hear the story about the rapes. we hear the story about the assaults. we see the children being dropped over the walls and many people are shocked that we hear that along the way it's even worse. you talked to someone last hour, a congressman last hour and retraced the steps that these migrants are coming threw. because joe biden st. migrant president. he remain in mexico. now longer have to apply for citizenship in the country you cross into. therefore, it's open season on our borders. lawrence: they are lecturing us about compassion when they are tropic these kids off like they are amazon package. they are tropic them off across the border. they are screaming, sara carter yesterday. see this video heart breaking guatemalan boy hadn't seen his mom seven years. they finally reunite over a phone call. take a look. the mother left andwas living w.
4:10 am
and about three years ago he thought he was going to be reunited with his mom again. but then she disappears. and he felt that his mother abandoned him. so, made this journey. he is saying, by himself to find his mother. [phone ringing] [speaking spanish >> that was really tough. he was talking to his mom for the first time, i don't know. overwhelmed. she was brought it tears. when you are a mom, when you are a human being and you see that happen, you can't help but have
4:11 am
compassion. brian: how about this? why are you leaving your kid? ainsley: we don't know the story. brian: what i know right now. it's not a good start. lawrence: i said this yesterday. different standards. we talk about assimilation. if american mom did this to her child, she would not see her child anymore. brian: ever. lawrence: he it she wouldn't deserve. ainsley: that's not necessarily true. if a child goes to live with their grandmother and the mom wants the child back, i would say judge is going to give the mom her child. brian: she abandoned the kid. ainsley: did you hear what she said to her son she said hello, my love. lawrence: listen i was on the c.p.s. board in dallas county for two years. and when we had parents that abandoned their kids, the state had a burden to prove that the mother was fit to keep that child again. you cannot abandon your child for seven years and then expect us to reunite to get -- i don't
4:12 am
think that's compassion. ainsley: the government definitely needs to step in and find out why are these group of kids coming without a parent. he didn't have his grandmother with him. he doesn't have his mom. why are they letting groups of kids. it's so dangerous. imagine your child, your 5-year-old your 3-year-old and 9-year-old in a group you don't know where the group is and out in the middle of nowhere. brian: 9-year-old felt so desperate they had to go on their own through the most perilous trail possible to reunite with a mom who is shocked to get a call from him because an american reporter like sara carter lent her cell phone. not a good start. i guess is he our responsibility now. 12 minutes after the hour as we bring up a democratic congressman whose district is at the border who is desperately trying to get the attention of a democratic president that this is chaos. and needs to be addressed. listen. >> you know, again, and what we are seeing at the border is only a snapshot of what happened to people. imagine the hundreds of miles that they go without any u.s.
4:13 am
intervention like we have here at the border. imagine what happens to them when they are doing the drut dangerous trek through mexico. imagine what happens to the people that get raped, get assaulted, you know, including adults and young kids? we are only seeing a snapshot. we don't see what's happening in those countries. lawrence: this is a democrat. he has been very critical of the biden administration. he has also leaked a lot of the footage of these facilities. he has also talked about immigration reform. but he has made it very clear. what's happening at the border cannot continue to happen. what these kids are going through and the biden administration, this is now a bipartisan issue. now you have issues saying enough is enough. brian: they are also lying to us saying they are turning around single men. turn them around? where is the proof you turning them around. title 2 put in place during the pandemic to give people a legal
4:14 am
reason to give up -- give our border agents hey we are in the middle of a pandemic have you got to go. this is health concern. when title 42 goes by the board. then you think it's bad now, it is going to come one, come all central and south america. and by the way romania. how are we getting romanians? lawrence: this is why they are making fun of us on tiktok the criminals are making fun of us because they know there is no consequences. ainsley: residents in scottsdale announced residence residents just learned being filled with migrants and families. 1200 beds there riding by and seeing security guards outside of this hotel and buses with people coming in with backpacks. they are putting them all over the country because there is no more room. lawrence: didn't talk to the residents about it. brian: we will just right the checks for that on deficit spending. 14 minutes after the hour and here is jillian with other news.
4:15 am
jillian: let's begin with this story. a woman shot at miami banquet hall earlier this week has died. peterson third person to die from sunday's mass shooting. more than 20 others were hurt. the shooting was caught on surveillance video. police are still looking for the suspect. it's one of many recent shootings in the area prompting miami-dade officials to crack town on violent crime with an initiative called operation summer heat. tyler some were bureau is hospitalized after being hit in the head by a line drive. we do want to warn you this video is tough to watch. >> that's good logic. here is a line drive right up the middle off of zombro. >> that was not a pretty sight. jillian: the 2-year-old falling face first after impact. players on both teams were visibly emotional. the game was suspended. is he in stable condition. 17 cities in los angeles county have issued no confidence votes in his distinct attorney george

exercising extra controls, extra powers because of a public health crisis emergency, thanks to covid and we -- this to me is this is critical race theory in our laws. and it's just reprehensible and it's quite offensive to the great people of connecticut and to the people i represent in greenwich and stanford. ainsley: what's in the bill? >> the bill makes this declaration as a fact and goes through and creates councils, advisory councils, commissions, task force, five of them to go through and reduce racial disparity in our state by 70%. it's written right here that our goal is set forth to reduction of 70%. why just 70%? and after that it does also say in a different section one of the tools that will be used is something called cultural humility. this will be implemented in the higher ed programs in
4:24 am
connecticut. and this is about self-evaluation, critique of one's own world view. and awareness of power and imbalances. i have parents in stanford concerned about critical race theory in the school system. i'm telling the good folks of connecticut that we are seeing critical race theory in our legislation and my call is for people in connecticut to let our governor know that we don't want him to sign this bill and make this declaration, you know, to the world. i mean, how do you invite people to come and do business in connecticut who live here, raise your family here at the same time we're going to declare that racism is a public health crisis here? ainsley: how do they plan on reducing racial disparity? >> well, one of their plans is to implement programs like cultural humility. but it will go through and come up with ways to reduce racial
4:25 am
disparity. in fact, that's one of the things that i said on the floor debate which is that disparity is a natural state. there will always be differences. but the beautiful thing about being american, is that in our country, we are call before the law. we see each other as call. equal. live liberty and the pursuit of happiness. and that is the proper role of government to protected individual rights. it is not the proper role to go out and make a declaration that the state is racist and to go through and find ways to eradicate racial disparity. this is critical race theory. it's extremely divisive. it's not what we want. and to me this is not a harmless bill with nice commissions and task forces. this is a -- this is a thought
4:26 am
police component. this is truly divisive in our communities. and we have seen many legislation. there was legislation based on racism in zoning laws. and it's insidious and it's in every legislation. this is the most blatant. and i am asking, you know, connecticut residents to tell our governor do not sign this bill. ainsley: representative, thank you so much for coming on with us. >> thank you. thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. coming up, he fought overseas a as navy seal alongside his twin brother lone survivor marcus luttrell. now morgan luttrell is eyeing a new mission in congress. ♪ ♪

4:34 am
>> quite a bit, actually. is he such an amazing individual. one thing that i learned while working at the department of energy is how important cybersecurity infrastructure is for our country. one of my biggest platforms is the threat to our country for cybersecurity. we have been seeing it over the past couple weeks with the colonial pipeline. the jbs meat factory and yesterday the subway in new york. those are 9/11 attacks without the body count. we need to be taking a hard look at cybersecurity to defend ourselves. wars fought in the future may not be planes and guns it will be the push of a button. brian: one thing you are used to taking decisive action. it's hard to lead in a body of 435. have you thought about that? i know you went to the harvard business school and got your leadership certificate. sam houston university. you were adjunct professor there. you are in control. are you willing to -- is it going to be hard for you to make

effort, among some state department officials, to oppose an extensive inquiry into the lab leak theory. the man they accuse of obstructing the probe, former acting undersecretary forearms control and international security chris ford denied any effort to quash an inquiry into the lab urge o ins. now the news comes as dr. fauci is also facing pressure from republicans to testify about what he knew and when after his e-mails were released through a freedom of information request. many of his responses are fully redacted. one e-mail, from april of last year, sent by nih director dr. francis collins to fauci references a fox news report saying multiple sources believe coronavirus originated in the wuhan lab before accidental ly escaping. that e-mail has the subject line "conspiracy gains momentum." >> the position of the administration and their top health experts that this was not engineered or , in fact an open question and part of this. >> let me just say on dr. fauci

, and his e-mails, e with will let him speak for himself. it's obviously not that advantageous for me to re litigate the substance of e-mails from 17 months ago. reporter: so, collins now says that he was not downplaying the theory that the virus originated in a lab, but was referencing the rumor that perhaps it was engineered as a bioweapon. fauci says he always believed and still does that it's more likely that the virus had natural origins but says that at this point, we just still don't know. back to you guys. >> jackie thanks for asking the question that many won't ask thanks so much. brian: jacqui heinrich thank you, meanwhile four minutes after the top of the hour, geraldo rivera now joins us. geraldo: hey, brian. ainsley: good morning. brian: mostly stays in ohio these days and i don't blame him it's beautiful and a battleground state. geraldo your thoughts about the new pressure that fauci is feeling at this hour? geraldo: i think first of all, brian, shame on the rest of us.
5:05 am
my goodness, here is the proposition, that this virus started in the one wet market in the same community as the one lab doing research on this virus it is preposterous, it was preposterous from the get-go. i accused the mainstream media. i accused the government spokesman. i accused everyone in authority of overlooking the obvious. this thing, probably started right where logic says it started in the lab, in the town, where it obviously escaped that lab, and i think that the reasons for us averting our attention from that obvious is that the mainstream media did not want to help donald trump. the narrative that this virus escaped a chinese government lab helped donald trump, because donald trump was blaming china. the press and the left wanted to blame donald trump, so by
5:06 am
blaming donald trump, you couldn't blame china. this was obvious, brian. we averted our attention. brian: don't say we, geraldo. we've been talking about this from day one about the lab. i can give you tom cotton here, last february about the lab. geraldo: they have tom cotton coming? listen, this thing is a scandal that will go down in history. we have many unanswered questions. what, for example, is the united states of america doing funding that virology research? did we not want to vigorously investigate what happened in that lab because we were funding it? why were we funding it? at what point did the w. h. o. understand that there was person-to-person communication? why for three weeks was the world mislead? i think that this is a huge,
5:07 am
huge scandal. we need a warrant commission, scale, investigation of what happened. brian: they won't do it. geraldo: they have to. ainsley: so tom cotton was canceled because of this. donald trump kept saying it because he was pushing this narrative of the lab, the mainstream media, to your point, wasn't covering it. congressman kevin mccarthy says this. >> they put politics before the lives of american citizens. we have to know the truth to this. we have to know why it started. the rest of the world needs to stand up and america and especially in congress, we should be the very first and we should be locked hand in hand. it should not be a question about republicans or democrats, because those thousands of americans who died from covid-19 , how many lives could have been stopped if we would have went after and found out from the very beginning where this originated, what were the facts, and the world health organization influenced by china didn't lie to the world. ainsley: geraldo that has to be hard to hear if you lost a loved one recently because of covid.
5:08 am
geraldo: right, but ainsley, isn't that the kind of message we needed to hear, in january of 2020, in february of 2020 shouldn't we have heard all of our elected leaders saying exactly that, that this thing is too dangerous? look at the mortality, ultimately what happened 600,000 dead americans, 4 million dead across the world. we have to know how it started to prevent it starting again. were they researching bioweapons even if they weren't doing something so malicious, isn't it obvious that somebody messed up? someone let a virus stick to their shoe or took it home in their lunch pale, and then when it started there was this frantic effort to cover it up. where is patient zero? where is the first person infect ed with this virus? >> many of us were doing that. many people, on fox, when you have marco rubio, cotton, the president, mike pompeo,
5:09 am
saying all of this , but the people that are entrusted, the mainstream media at large, they didn't do. brian: they let us down. >> so will there be accountability for them? geraldo: but that's my point. remember the dryfus case, the jewish officer, who was framed and then meazola, the hey orish publisher, says that i accuse the mainstream media here of intentionally averting their glance to what was happening and the wuhan virology lab because they wanted donald trump to lose the election. ainsley: it's political. geraldo: i think it is that political. brian: geraldo i'll say this to backup your point. josh rogan washington post wrote a book about it. he could not believe he couldn't get his colleagues to pick-up the story, that they weren't even asking the question. anthony fauci doesn't have the answers to his own e-mail questions, and was going to publish a book out in november, basically how to handle the

pandemic. he's as tone deaf as governor cuomo. geraldo: did, in fact, three chinese lab technicians get sick in that lab in november of 2019? are they patients one, two, and three? is that where it started? is that how long the cover-up goes? and then the world health organization, did they do any inspection? any investigation other than listening to the communist chinese handlers of these medical technicians who were there? it is a scandal that will unfold we need to know what happened in that lab. >> should fauci be hired? i'm not saying he had malicious intentions but there's definitely an effort to cover up what really happened. he wasn't transparent even when rand paul was pressing him, he tried to split hairs instead of being transparent. geraldo: because, lawrence, i think he is basically an honorable person. i have a hard time believing
5:11 am
fauci covered up vital information and then allowed the world, let me finish. was he indeed trying to obviscat e, cover up the fact that we had invested over $3 million in this lab from 201? why was the united states of america investing in communist chinese lab doing this perilous work. what the hell were they going to find out about this virus that be so useful that it justified an american investment of millions of dollars. brian: and their economies, yeah. geraldo: we need big, we need big on this. we have to understand what happened. this could be the crime of the century. so many dead people. >> but forgive me, geraldo, are you saying he was naive then? this guy, we let him shutdown the country. he can't be that naive. geraldo: lawrence? i just have a feeling about the guy. i don't think he's dishonest but
5:12 am
he may have been manipulated by his technocratic colleagues in china, hey, we can't let people think that what we've been doing so so dangerous, okay, well we better hold off and let's see , you know? i have deep suspicion, i don't trust anybody on this anymore. i want a broad investigation with real powers. if the chinese, indeed, are neglect enough to have caused this chaos, this mayhem, this historic carnage, then they should pay the price. brian: i is are have john cena asking for transparency. jillian: good morning let's begin with a fox news alert. just this morning, two women are attacked on a new york city subway. police say a man slashed both of them with a knife during a dispute. the suspect is in custody. the attack happened just hours after two men were slashed on the same subway line. >> a 13-year-old girl pleads
5:13 am
guilty to murder in the botched carjacking that left an uber eats driver dead in d.c. the girl and another teen were caught on video, tasing the 66- year-old driver before taking his car and speeding off as he clung to the side. he was thrown from the car and killed. it means she will be released from prison when she turns 21. the other suspect plead guilty to felony murder last month. >> google is facing backlash for not firing the head of diversity over controversial comments. in 2007 she wrote anti-semetic posts in a blog that is reportedly still online. the post is titled, "if i were a jew." google announced bob be removed from his position as global lead for diversity but would remain with the company in a research role. that's a look at your headlines i'll send it back to you. brian: google in trouble. all right thanks jillian. meanwhile, the biggest cryptocurrency conference ever is kicking off today in miami, with tens of thousands expected
5:14 am
to attend, susan li with our sister network, fox business, joins us live from miami with more on what to expect, susan. what is it like so far? reporter: hey, brian. well i can tell you that bitcoin and cryptocurrency mania is raging here in miami, so the doors are about to open on the largest-ever cryptocurrency event the planet has ever seen. we're expecting 20,000 come through these gates over the next few days but i can tell you at 8:00 a.m. there are hundreds already lined up around the block, and they are being attracted here by some primetime speakers, you have jack dorsey, floyd mayweather and famous skateboarder tony hawk and in case you haven't heard, bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have taken the financial world by storm over the past year, being called the new digital currency, also new digital goals, and who can blame them, a lot of money the past year up 300% for bitcoin, up more than that for ethererum and other cryptocurrencies as well so these are believers that think
5:15 am
that this is the future of money , but as you know, with all things and investments and asset management, it's buyer beware. >> you don't understand what you're investing in you probably shouldn't be investing in it but when people learn, even if they come from traditional background s, they often change their minds. reporter: yup, so bitcoin, ethererum all the cryptocurrencies now worth $2.5 trillion. that's worth more than apple and it only took them 13 years. so yeah, i guess there's a lot of energy here in miami today. back to you. brian: all right, susan, thanks so much appreciate it. ainsley: thank you, susan. brian: they just keep on popping up more and more. ainsley: i have a friend who bought 25 bitcoins in the very beginning, worth almost 1 million. brian: right. ainsley: incredible. brian: take a loan out. ainsley: maybe i can jump on her yacht one day. president biden expected to push putin after the u.s. is hit again by a russia-based ransomware attack. what should we expect?
5:16 am
we're going to ask general jack keane, coming up, next with brian. before nexium 24hr, anna could only imagine a comfortable night's sleep without frequent heartburn waking her up. now, that dream... . her reality. nexium 24hr stops acid before it starts, for all-day, all-night protection. can you imagine 24 hours without heartburn?
5:17 am
i am robert strickler. i've been involved in communications in the media for all-day, all-night protection. for 45 years. i've been taking prevagen on a regular basis for at least eight years. for me, the greatest benefit over the years has been that prevagen seems to help me recall things and also think more clearly. and i enthusiastically recommend prevagen. it has helped me an awful lot. prevagen. healthier brain. better life. if your dry eye symptoms keep coming back, inflammation in your eye might be to blame. looks like a great day for achy, burning eyes! over-the-counter eye drops typically work by lubricating your eyes and may provide temporary relief. ha! these drops probably won't touch me. xiidra works differently, targeting inflammation that can cause dry eye disease.
5:18 am
what is that? xiidra, noooo! it can provide lasting relief. xiidra is the only fda-approved non-steroid treatment specifically for the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. one drop in each eye, twice a day. don't use if you're allergic to xiidra. common side effects include eye irritation, discomfort or blurred vision when applied to the eye, and unusual taste sensation. don't touch container tip to your eye or any surface. after using xiidra, wait 15 minutes before reinserting contacts. got any room in your eye? talk to an eye doctor about twice-daily xiidra. i prefer you didn't! xiidra. not today, dry eye. pain doesn't care how old you are. or what color you are. pain doesn't care if you live in a small town or in the spotlight. pain has no limits. that means we need care without limits. care like a parent with a newborn. care like we took an oath.
5:19 am
care that's strong, fast and safe. that's care without limits.
5:20 am
brian: so the white house promising to press vladimir putin on their upcoming summit june 16 over recent ransomware attacks stemming from groups inside russia. so, president biden finally stands up to the former soviet state, are they sending a message to him. fox news senior strategic analyst retired four star general jack keane here. jack, june 16 we're going to have this , this summit, and they're trying to send a message , it seems, and they say, to us leading up to it. what are they trying to express? >> yeah, well, russia is fundamentally, as a national
5:21 am
objective, is trying to undermine western democracies and particularly the united states, and these cyber criminal attacks are part of this massive cyber warfare campaign that russia was using as an instrument of national power to disrupt and undermine the united states democracy and our institutions and the people 's confidence in them. it's a massive campaign that they conduct. they use their military intelligence gru and their fsb kind of like our cia, brian, as their primary government hackers and then there's two other parts to the program that come into play. they hire and contract out cyber criminals, they did this with al exi bilan in 2017 who hacked into yahoo and stole 500 e-mail accounts. the united states fbi indicted this guy, of course the russians have done nothing about it, and then the third thing is what we're seeing now, and this is widespread criminal activity that the russians tolerate and they sanction. they do nothing to prevent it.
5:22 am
why? because it contributes to their overall objective. it's breaking down people's confidence in institutions and you saw what happened with the pipeline, certainly where we had a massive disruption on the east coast. russia certainly knew about that , and certainly tolerating it. the biden administration has to come to grips with this entire thing that has taken place here, and just calling it out at the summit is not going to be enough putin will deny it. he will say i have no control over that. he will deflect it just like he did with president trump. we need to do more than that. brian: well, they hit cattle, they hit meat, obviously. they hit oil & gas. they mess with the ferry system, and they are also here with the mta. pharmaceuticals are very susceptible. we know about our lighting grid but we got this thing called our own offensive cyber abilities. why don't we blinking their lights? that seems to be the only thing that he would understand.
5:23 am
>> yeah, certainly. calling out putin and holding him accountable for this has not taken place yet. that's step one, do it publicly and also do it privately. step two is go on the offense as you suggest. we should direct cyber command which has our offensive cyber capability, they used it during the 2018 elections the russians were trying to undermine and also in the 2020 elections, and we've been told publicly that it was successful. they should attack the cyber infrastructure of these criminal organizations and shut them down temporarily and if we continue to persist in doing it, it'll eventually become a deterrence because every time they pull the trigger we shut them down. brian: yeah. >> and that will have an impact on them. and then we should sanction them this taking down our utility grid on the east coast, we should sanction russia's oil & gas industry and the people involved in it. hurt these guys where their pocket book is. that needs to be done.
5:24 am
and the last thing is, we need some legislation to incentivize these private firms to harden their defenses, brian. particularly those who are supporting our critical infrastructure as we saw with the pipeline and we've got to have a better exchange between the private sector and our government sharing data and information. brian: right away, what about a punch list in order to do something that affects national security like oil, gas, and meat , and now pharmaceuticals. real quick, on china. they put out a statement, i'll paraphrase. "we want to develop a nuclear arsenal to be able to make american cities shiver." why are they like this now, what message should we get from that and what should the pentagon glean from this? >> well this is a china state- owned piece. they tend to be bombbastic, explosive, very confrontational and we have a significant over match on china's nuclear
5:25 am
system. they have a few hundred, we have a few thousand, we've got about 1,500 deployed. they got a couple hundred. the reality is china is improving their systems but there's no evidence they are going to get into a nuclear arms race with the united states. the real issue here is we have weaknesses not in nuclear deterrence but conventional deterrence because we have a conventional war with china, because they want to take advantage of us. that could lead to a nuclear exchange. that's the danger we have. we've got to sure up the fact that china is out-gunning us and out-manning us in the western pacific. the biden budget is coming in with some of the initiatives that the commanders out there have asked for , brian but they aren't doing all of what is absolutely needed, and it has to have a sense of urgency. we need to protect our bases out there with missile defense systems. we need long range missiles ourselves to take the chinese down, and their land base as well as their maritime fleet. that is something that is
5:26 am
essential and needs to be done as soon as possible. brian: absolutely, got real threats out there, and we can't overstate that enough. general jack keane thanks so much. >> yeah, great talking to you brian have a wonderful weekend. brian: as usual, thank you. meanwhile fox news alert as businesses across the country struggle to hire, a crucial may jobs report is just minutes away we don't know what it says, we know what to expect.

5:42 am
contend that all politics are local, so we decided we want to pushback against this woke cancel culture of pushback against coca cola because they were one of the ones out front, and so we decided to remove the coke machines in surry county, basically. commissioner as you know politic s is local so what are the residents in your county saying? >> well, the response here has been overwhelming. actually, it went viral yesterday, and, i mean, i received hundreds if not thousands of e-mails and phone calls, and from all over the nation but locally its been very very supportive. our citizens support this and they're absolutely sick and tired of this outrageous left wing mob that is attacking freedom of speech, that is attacking people's jobs, it's completely out of control in
